    Omg I have no rucks this week, Pruess sucked me in last week and now English is Gawn.

    Both of my trades this week will now probably be for f—ing rucks.
    How are you supposed to ever improve your team?

    I still have three rookies on field, though Parnell is going well.
    Jeffrey, Clarke/Durdin not so well.

      Clark if hes in the guts, doubtful though. Parnell against Roos will be good if doesnt have delayed concussion symptoms

    Well, I’m now glad brought in Nanks @ R2 two weeks ago.
    Downgrade English to Jackson.
    Greg Clark to the Bont.
    Only rookie on field is Daicos.
    Backline set.
    Forwards set.
    Mids set.. with Daicos @ M8. He’s gone ok I guess.
    Rucks are ok. Could be worse.
    Have enough fattened rookies to bring back English and Gawn when needed.
    But as always.. there’s FMDT waiting to ruin shit.

    Interesting to see that Laird had 50 points in the first quarter but only gained 17 metres.
    Had a total of 42 touches & gained only 284 metres for the game.
    He’s not a very damaging player for all his possessions.
    Moot point for fantasy I guess..

    • BrodieA

      Kind of worried he will be put back into the backlines and the young guys get more mid time. Slim chance Nicks actually does that though

      Keep in mind that metres gained is net not gross (i.e., backward passes are deducted). So a player who’s winning the ball and passing it backwards to a free player may have very low metres gained despite being very effective. The stat should be gross metres gained IMO.

        Yeah you’re right, I didn’t mention the sideway kicking. The commentators discussing his effectiveness did mention sideways kicking but claimed he still wasn’t very damaging..

    Hey guys wouldn’t mind some advice. I bought the big dogs this year at the start to realise there not the big dogs anymore what is the order to get rid of from these four guys, Petracca, Merrett, Mitchell and Cripps thanks

  10. BrodieA

    June 21, 2022 at 5:41 pm

    For me, the order you already have them in here.
    Mitchell and Cripps havent been terrible
    Petracca has been useless for 3 rounds and not going to be hand fed by Gawn for a while
    Merrett last 4 games havent been bad, just havent been good

    With English out I need a ruck. Not sure if I should go Preuss/Clark to Jackson/Dawson or to Peter Wright/Laird. I was aiming for Laird b4 English inj but can’t afford both Jackson & Laird. BTW I seem 2 finally b getting the idea. 77 yo now & finally making the top 2000.
